Winning weekend at the Glen.

Unread postby datsit on Tue Sep 09, 2014 10:16 pm

Well that was an interesting weekend away at Watkins Glen NY, for the Vintage Races.



Due to last minute changes, I did a solo trip to the Glen with BD, Roadster & Towd, dinner ready sooner then expected !! Manifold Destiny, good eats

. This was good in away as I wanted to do a test trip with the full rig for future trips planed. All went well on the 568 mi. round trip, 60--65 mph had a hand full of high or long hills (down to 45mph at crest) MPG shows 10.14 a little down from the mileage with 2BBL carb (now 4BBL/looks to be running a little rich), I towed this unit (car/trailer/flatbed) about 3800 lbs (lighter past tows) 70% major hiway(had time frame) & 30% secondary roads & towns (Stop/Go some steep hills from stop) Did meet up with navigator, manage to pick up a 1ST place in group Road Rallye

(NOTE; At no time did I knowingly exceed the lawfully posted speed limits doing this !!!???!! Must check eyes, as numbers on post looked like numbers on dash speedo !!!!!) Hooked up with new friends & old ones, blast from the past 2 friends from the early 70s. Meet up with Lee Chilson with his 69 210, enjoyed a long conversation, here are some RVs at the Glen, saw my first Rat Rod RV, looking for VW Westfalia (daughters boyfriends parents) well there where 30++ there, good people to talk to. Well time to unload rest up & catch up on work, then reload & go on next outing in 2 weeks.

Alcoa's... 19.5... Are these still being made or still available?
Would chrome plating the 19.5 Budd steel wheels, LOOK like Alcoa's...?
More concerned with the looks rather than a weight savings of 10
pounds per wheel weight (Estimated)... Are they worth the money???
Curious...
Anyone have a plan for forming for a TravcoForum style Travco get together this coming summer???

You could always just get some wheel covers like I have. I know that the steel wheels are pretty heavy... not sure about the aluminum version.
